Top 10 Fireworks

I haven't posted anything for a spell, so I just wanted to make a fun list of my top 10 favorite fireworks, based solely on the titles. The nice thing is if you're a fireworks fan you get to enjoy them even longer here in Utah because we celebrate Pioneer Day here on the 24th of July! Enjoy!

10.Tuff Stuff

Who is this mighty warrior that glides through the air on her mechanical flying lion? Who knows. Only one thing is sure, she's tuff stuff.

9.Show Me The Money

A visual reminder of how much money you're burning through. A top seller no doubt.


This firework must first be shaken, not stirred.

7.Dog House

Bob here reminds me of Elvis, which reminds me of the song Hound Dog.

6.Friendship Pagoda

This one looks pretty cool. It spins and as the fuse burns each level of the pagoda pops up. Not bad TNT.

5.Ground Bloom Flower

An old classic. Commonly tampered with to cause and explosion instead of simply spinning. We used to throw ours in water sometimes. We liked how it would gurgle and keeps spinning and burning.


We're gettin' down to the good stuff here, parachuters! What kid didn't love fighting over the parachute? I heard there are parachuters with actual army men attached instead of just the firework itself. Sweet!


I loved these little molten poops as a kid! Such a strange firework. I don't know why that one pack is called "Glow Worms" when those are clearly snakes. Oh well.

And now, the number one firework, of all time, is, you guessed it..........


That little firework that could, the tank! I always stood in awe at these when I was a young lad! It moves along and fires at the same time! How can you top that!?

Did your favorite firecracker make the cut? No? Tell me about it in the comments below!

Well, that's all for today folks. Tune in next time as I recap Fantasy Con. I hope you had a great 4th of July!


  1. #10 on your list is just epic with the picture on the package if i had a van from the 1970s that is what i would have painted on it lol.

    1. That would be awesome! I could totally see you cruising around in that John! :D

  2. I remember those tanks - those are pretty sweet! And I had totally forgotten about Pioneer Days. I do recall all the sweet illegal fireworks we'd get from Wyoming though!

    1. Yeah, the tanks are boss! I forget sometimes that no one else celebrates Pioneer Day, except Idaho I think might.

      In other news Utah finally legalized ariel fireworks a few years ago! I totally forgot because I haven't purchased a firework since I was a teenager.

  3. Looks like ya'll had a blast! LOL

    1. Ha ha, you can say that again! It was a crazy day, we spent the morning and afternoon at Fantasy Con, then dashed back home for the parade and firework show. Good times. :)
